Advice from an hereditary witch’s grandmother: things a crone has to say

My witch of a grandmother gave me her beautiful encyclopedia on healing plants to celebrate Ostara!
I told her about my blog and she asked me to share some of her advice “for those lovely internet disciples of yours”.
No, Yeyé, that’s not how this works…

But hey! When the crone talks, you listen!

“A jar of glass keeps away envious spirits and people who want to hurt you.”

“Everything dead deserves to be honored.”

“Strings of seeds bring prosperity.”

“A stone in the windowsill is a soldier that keeps away thieves, but make sure it’s not a pretty rock cause they might steal it!”

“When you trim a vine, keep some branches by the door so all the hard work you’ve done doesn’t disappear in a single day!”

“When you’re old and can’t move so much anymore, keep a jar of seeds by the Gods so they can pick their offerings as they please.”

“I keep lavender by the computer because it helps me remember how to open Facebook. Lavender is good for memory. Tell your friends of the internet.”

“I keep the obsidian and the agathe geodes in front of the TV so there will be no bad news.”

So there you have it.

Advice from an authentic crone with over 70 years of Craft , Old Yeyé.

She wishes you all many blessings and love and hopes you are all well guided.

Happy new season from lucky Old Yeyé!

Thank you, Yeyé!!!

She is adorable and wonderful.

lilibat: So…  The web host for the Antimony & Lace site...


So…  The web host for the Antimony & Lace site was hacked. I had to take everything down. I am going to try and reboot the site sometime before the end of the year. I also just nuked the old forums. 

If anyone is interested in updates on the site or discussing dark & gothic DIY I made a FB group, (yeah I know), as a stop gap. 


I expect everyone to play nice or you get the boot. Not kidding.

Here it is: Best stuff first

Extremely handy if you follow a lot of people and hate missing anything good. 

Best Stuff First moves the best stuff on your dashboard—mhm!—right up to the top. 

It’s rolling out this week on iOS and Android, and comes with this Help Center article.  

Thanks! ✌️

Head’s up folks! Tumblr decided to shit the bed and go non-chronological!

This bullshit is being rolled out this week and it’s going to be default!

Ah yay, another feature to deactivate immediately!

Has anyone actually ever wanted this bullshit feature in any of the social media apps????? Like I’d rather give all the people I follow the same power posting wise than let the popular ones go first. Ugh

No.  No one has ever wanted this ‘feature,’ with the exception of advertisers!  Because if your posts aren’t chronological, then it’s easier to slip more stuff they ‘think’ we’ll ‘like,’ ie something someone else PAID to go first in our feeds.

@staff Making things like this a default instead of allowing an opt-in is why everyone hates and mistrusts you.

Oh good G-D.


Ugh, I hate non-chronological feeds SO MUCH. Time to obsessively check my settings and make sure to deactivate this whenever the hell it shows up.

Also, interesting how the screenshot of the settings only shows the mobile app options. I’m going to keep a close eye on my web browser version, too.
